- Wedding: November 2011
We’re going for a Jack & Jill shower – picture more of a cocktail party with presents – instead of traditional shower. I know, I know, how dare I buck tradition, but this wedding is about BOTH of us, not just me, and, therefore, I want it to be a celebration with both of our friends & families. Besides, (I’ll be flogged for this but so be it) I HATE TRADITIONAL WEDDING SHOWERS. There, I said it. Out loud. Moving forward…
Enter my dilemma: how do I go about asking either my dad or, preferably, a bridesmaid to host it at one of their homes? I don’t want it at a resturant or hall because I refuse to ask my bridesmaids to break the bank; thus, the idea of one of their homes. I don’t want to pressure anyone at all, but it’s not like I can host it at my own home. I’m all for mixing things up, but that would be downright tacky.
Let’s hear it, bees, how do I ask a close friend or family member to host?
